Don't laugh, the " grocery list" is a good idea. It's a pain to keep second guessing yourself all the time, AFTER you get the ball rolling! do all of THAT before you make your arrangements. When I just built my 280' it all started by me running into a deal on the barrel, which was a Brux. ( I found it here in the classifieds, and it was one of the " Brothers " too!).
There's no particular order either. You can buy the stock, action, or barrel, at any time, but you have to a least have a vision of what your final product will be . But as I said earlier, the most important thing, is of course the Gunsmith, to whom will be doing the work. ( just because they waer a shop apron, and own a Bridgeport lathe, DOSENT make them a gunsmith!). Reputations make good gunsmiths, and vice versa!

Butterbean, precisely my thoughts! That's one way to eliminate an old worn out one being used. For some reason tho i was thinking the barrel was reamed at the place you bought it from.

You wouldn't be the first. I saw a picture of a license plate in Colorado that was 7STW.

Okay Brothers, the STW brass well is now dry. I've got 4 bags of 50pcs of new Rem STW brass. First come first served.
